For Today . . . April 21, 2010
Outside my window . . . it was a high temperature recording setting day with +25 degrees C today. The sun was shining brightly, fluffy white clouds dotted the sky and the kids had a marvelous time playing outside at recess.
I am thankful . . . for green growing plants.
And I also am thankful . . . for my good health.
I am praying . . . for children around the world. The American Idol show tonight included fund raising for children around the world. The stories were so poignant.
I am thinking . . . about planting potatoes and starting plants.
I am creating . . . photos and stories for my "A Week In My Life" Project.
I am celebrating . . . Blake's 10 month birthday today.
From the kitchen . . . precious little as we have been away in Calgary for a few days. While there we had the best lunches and baked treats from Indulge Catering.
I am wearing . . . black pants, black tshirt, green summer sweater and a pink and green beaded silver chain.
I am reading . . . Reclaiming the "L" Word (Renewing the Church from Its Lutheran Core) by Kelly A. Fryer - chapter 6 - "It is time for each of us to hear God's call in a new way. ...... The point is that, right from the start, God has always called very ordinary people into ministry. "
The Girls of Riyadh by Rajaa Alsanea - for our next book club gathering - "The conflict of educated modern Saudi women growing up in the 21st century in a culture firmly rooted in an ancient way of life."
I am hoping . . . to get some potatoes planted this weekend.
I am hearing . . . the evening news, talking about rain coming in a day or two. We need it!!
I am going . . . to have 2 little visitors for a sleepover next week - and I'm looking forward to it!!
Around the house and yard . . . the grass is slowly turning green, the buds are forming on the trees and shrubs and spring is here!
One of my favourite things . . . shopping with our daughters. Heather and I snuck in one hour together at the Cross Iron Mills shopping center.
A few plans for the rest of the week . . . 2.5 days of subbing, filling our freezer with packages of beef (thanks, Mom and Dad!), book club discussing The Book of Negroes, Bible study and lots of yard work.
A quote for today . . .
